" A world brimming with innovation and infrastructure in all sectors is a dream I am yet to be awoken from. As a member of the Millennium Fellowship, I hope to push for this dream to become a reality while learning from and impacting everyone I meet along this journey. These skills and knowledge I wish to imbibe and impact from and on the fellows of the Millennium Fellowship will aid my plan on making a difference in the youth of my community and the world at large directing them towards the actualisation of the sustainable goals "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Rerin
"Rerin” is a Yoruba (one of the major ethnic groups in Nigeria that inhabits south-western part of Nigeria) word meaning ‘to smile or laugh’
Project Rerin is a Millennium Fellowship project that seeks to increase more awareness of mental health to the public. Our aim is that by the end of this project, more people have a better understanding of mental illness and there is a significant reduction in the stigma attached to it. We also aim to create more awareness of the treatability of the illness.
